Marathon Continent #6 A Huge Success!

Bonjour fellow Warrior Runners!!! I am very pleased to report that my marathon continent #6 through the dozens of vineyards in Bordeaux, France was an amazing celebration of life and accomplishment. Where everyone dressed in costume (I went as Wonder Woman), there was wine straight from the local vineyards being served at 21 “wine stations” along the course. Everyone was so happy and friendly that I can easily say, hands down, that this was the most fun I’ve ever had running a marathon. To top it all off (icing on the cake), the wine was amazing AND energizing. I felt great, and actually finished feeling strong and fast (Can we say negative splits?!) The race is called Marathon du Medoc, and I encourage seasoned long-distance runners looking for a destination run to seriously consider this trip. I booked with Marathon Tours and Travel out of Boston, and the staff is so helpful and responsive. Thom, the owner, who was on this particular trip, is as fun-loving as he is organized— the ying and yang of a good tour group operator. Salut to that “joie de vivre!”

Here are my results:

Finish Time: 4:59:28

Position: 1037/7961
